What a great man and a good friend! Both members of the Rotary Club of Sugar House which brought a lasting friendship. Bernie and Wayne knew he and Bobbi well. Many discussions on life and later.
Our greatest and sincere condolences.

Bob was a supportive older brother, an inspirational role model, and a trusted friend throughout my life. I will miss him forever. Thank you Bobbie for the devoted and impeccable care you have given him. You have been wonderful.

I just saw the notice about the passing of Bob. Just yesterday as I drove by the house, I mentally waved, knowing the darned virus prevented me from stopping and knocking on the door to say Hi. My deepest sympathies -- I so enjoyed getting to know Bob at Dance Club -- a dear man from whom I never heard one word of complaint as his physical challenges kept him from the receiving line. And deepest condolences to Bobbie.
